Sandhills Wine Trail

Sandhills Wine Trail

The Pinehurst, Southern Pines, Aberdeen Area is known for golf, but it is also home to several inviting wine bars, a nearby award wining vineyard and a sweet little cider house. There are plenty of things for wine enthusiasts, restaurants, and fun things to do and explore when you are in town. The Sandhills Wine Trail Passport is designed to guide you around Moore County and beyond where you can enjoy a beverage and our cool, Southern vibe. So, whether you play golf, or not, anyone can tee up a good time with some friends, a passport and a few rounds at our favorite 19th holes.
